@equalsJeffH To clarify, this PR doesn't attempt to address the silent
 auth situation at all. The difference between an authenticator that 
does user verification and one that doesn't is whether the user needs 
to show a fingerprint/face/pin to authenticate. An authenticator that 
doesn't do user verification is one that authenticates user based on 
only tapping or touching of the button. But the user in this case 
still made a move. Maybe instead of a binary object, I will change it 
to a enum to clarify this.
